Ensuring payment for a sub-contractor

Dean acted for a sub-contractor in a contractual dispute over analytical services provided to a commercial data centre service provider. The contractor disputed the amount of work that had been carried out by the sub-contractor, alleging that it did not owe any of the money claimed.

On the day of trial Dean was able to instigate negotiations such that a very favourable settlement was reached for his client, the agreement also including provision for payment of invoices that had not been included within the claim as they had not yet fallen due.
